Edgar Allan Poe's Tales of Death and Dementia

Illustrated by Gris Grimly

A murderer driven to the edge by the sound of his victim's still-beating heart…

A mental institution run by someone other than its staff…

A mysterious box aboard a ship with a ghastly secret…

And the hypnotist's stare that could, perhaps, paralyze even death…

Strap into your straitjacket, fasten it tight, and brace yourself! For within these pages are stories of lost love, lost ways… and lost minds. Gris Grimly's mysterious, morbid, macabre illustrations capture four Poe classics, including perennial favourite, The Tell Tale Heart, with an unmatchable ghoulish charm.

Read them if you dare ~ and celebrate, in true Poe style, the two hundredth anniversary of the birth ofthe great Master of the Macabre.
